Driving VA to VT - Which Way Is Better?

Jump to last reply

On Saturday, Sep. 17, I will be driving from Lorton, VA, to Burlington, VT. Mapquest is showing two possible routes, with a driving time difference of about 45 minutes. I would like to see if anybody knows of any particular pros or cons about either route that might help me decide which way to go. This is not a sightseeing trip, although if given a choice I’d rather see scenery than urban blight…..

Option 1, driving time 10 hrs 3 mins. This is the most easterly route and basically takes I-95/I-295 to I-87 north to Albany where the two routes merge.

Option 2, driving time 10 hrs 49 mins. This route stays farther west of NYC. It takes I-270 to I-81, to I-88 to Albany where it connects to I-87 and merges with Option 1.

My instinct tells me to take the western route (Option 2) and avoid getting too close to NYC, but I know nothing about traffic, road conditions, or flooding along either route so any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!
